Khan Leak - Did Bush Administration Leak Lead to London Bombings?


Published 2005
Topics bush, khan, leak


On 2004-08-01, the Bush Administration leaked the name of Muhammad Naeem Noor Khan, an arrested computer hacker in Pakistan who was actively collecting information on Al Qaeda. This blew an undercover operation which may have prevented the London bombings.

The video is a collection of pertinent news footage. To read a decent summary in text form, head to... http://americablog.blogspot.com/2005/07/bush-admin-may-be-responsible-for.html.

Also, I've created a dedicated splash page, with links to articles cited. Head to KhanLeak.com.

Subject: The sarcasm works!
This is a great video. There are some parts that get confusing but overall it really drives the message home. The sarcasm of the narrator really works. I honestly didn't know a whole lot about the whole "leaking" situation but this video did open my eyes.
